kegels for sexKegel exercises for sex? Now there’s something you don’t hear every day. We always hear about the health benefits of pelvic floor exercises but did you know that they can also help you have better sex?

Dr. Kegel’s Surprise Discovery

Kegel exercises as they are known today were developed in the 1940s by gynecologist Dr. Arnold Kegel, who recommended that women recovering from childbirth exercise their pelvic floor to prevent health problems.  However, in follow-up examinations he soon discovered a very exciting side-effect to the treatment: patients doing Kegel exercises regularly were achieving orgasm more easily, more frequently, and more intensely.

How it Works

The muscles you strengthen during Kegel exercise, the “PC” (pubococcygeus), are some of the muscles that contract during orgasm, so toning them enhances those sensations and makes it easier to reach climax. And we’ve already discussed the numerous benefits of orgasms, from beating stress to boosting the immune system, so having more and better orgasms can only be a plus!

Stronger pelvic muscles also mean a tighter vagina–so both you and your partner will feel more intense sensations during sex.  

Make it a Couple’s Activity

Kegel exercises don’t have to be limited to your own private workout – think about getting your partner involved. What fun ways can you think of to use Kegels together?

Show your partner your progress by tightening your muscles around their finger during foreplay. Integrate it into intercourse to give both you and your partner a little thrill. If it felt good to squeeze during sex before you started Kegel exercises just imagine how much more enjoyable it will be once you’ve been toning those muscles for a few weeks.

Kegel Exerciser Basics

If you’re looking to enhance your routine, Kegel exercisers are the perfect solution. They’re usually small, hollow balls with a weight inside, and while similar balls have been around for over a thousand years, the best Kegel exercisers today are made from medical grade silicone.

The balls are inserted into the vagina, and held using the strength of your pelvic muscles. To really work your pelvic floor, you should follow a routine of contraction and release but when not following a specific training routine, Kegel balls can also be used for some fun before sex.

When your muscles are stronger from exercising you’ll be able to hold the balls in place while standing, doing things around the house, or even go out while wearing them! The weights inside the balls will shift and bounce as you move, stimulating this sensitive area and creating more blood flow. The balls will create both physical arousal and anticipation for what happens when you get home. It’s like your own secret bit of foreplay.

What are you waiting for?

As you can see, Kegel exercises and sex are the perfect partners. Adding a boost to your sex life, they increase vaginal sensation and sensitivity, and give you improved and more intense orgasms. Plus, you gain the amazing benefits of perfect pelvic health – who could say no to that? If you haven’t started, what are you waiting for? Kegel exercises are something every woman should do.
